I have just returned from the Broadway Screening Room, located in the Brill Building in New York City, after having been invited by director Ron Maxwell to a private showing of his film Copperhead, the last time it will be viewed before the picture is locked. I am very limited in what I can say about the film, but I will give you a few tidbits below. I am actually going to write my full review in the next few days and save it for the late May/early June 2013 release, since it is so fresh in my head. Before I get to some details, I just want to say it was great getting a chance to sit and chat with Ron for a few minutes before the film, and also to see actor Brian Mallon again, after we met in the summer of 2011 at the Gods and Generals Extended Director’s Cut world premiere in Virginia. However, in contrast to that film, and Maxwell’s other Civil War work Gettysburg, Copperhead is one that is going to stand alone in terms of films made about the War Between the States. Simply put, it is unlike any other made about the subject ever.
Here is our biggest photo update yet, fresh from the set of Copperhead. We now have our first up-close look at some of the actors/actresses as well some of the crew-members. These were taken by their wonderful still-photographer, and I must say, they are outstanding shots! Enjoy!

Screenwriter Bill Kauffman:
Well, ladies and gentlemen, you asked for some behind-the-scenes photos, and here they are! Just received these from the production a few minutes ago, fresh from the set of Copperhead. There will be more to come.
